I have been pondering over Psalm 23 today and thought about the content of this email that circulated a while ago and figured I would share with y'all.


The Lord is my Shepherd ~ Relationship

I shall not want ~ Provision

He maketh me to lie down in green pastures ~ Comfort

He leadeth me beside still waters ~ Peace

He restoreth my soul ~ Healing

He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness ~ Guidance

For His name sake ~ Purpose

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death ~ Trials & Testing

I will fear no evil ~ Protection

For thou art with me ~ Faithfulness

Thy rod and thy staff they comfort me ~ Assurance

Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies ~ Deliverance

Thou anointest my head with oil ~ Consecration

My cup runneth over ~ Abundance

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life ~ Grace

And I will dwell in the house of the Lord ~ Security

Forever ~ Eternity

Can you imagine sitting in the presence of your enemies while enjoying a good meal in comfort? I think the Psalmist painted this vivid picture to depict God's providence and also his(David's) trust in the promises of God that He would be with Him no matter what. It gives me such great peace to know that such an awesome God cares for me!

I got this award a little while ago from prettykay (Thanks girl!) and I guess I missed passing it on. If you're reading this you're tagged. The rule is to say 7 things about yourself which I think I have done in two previous posts but I could do it again :-)

1. I'm a great wife if I do say so myself. (You better agree Honey!) hehe
2. I am also a girly girl and make no apologies for it. (Yeah I love pinks, purples, blues, shoes, getting my hair did, make-up, dresses, shopping etc). Why would I deny I'm a girl? ha!
3. People always guess I'm between 18-23! Very fluttering!
4.I love life!
5. I wish I were more passionate about my faith than people see. I love Jesus with a passion and I am unapologetically christian!
6. I love being a nurse but I'm not sure if I love my current job
7. I believe I am meant for greatness and I am still in the process of letting that manifest in my life :-)

shoppers paradise

So I went shopping the other day for long spring-y/summer-y dresses and came across a very pretty grayish/pewter/ash colored dress that caught my eye right away. For some unknown reason, I always look at the tag to see where it is made and before even checking out the fabric care. We all know it sucks to buy that dress which requires dry cleaning when you have no intention of dry cleaning it.

Anyways, imagine my surprise when I realized the dress was made in (drum rolls please...) KENYA! I wanted to scream "I am African and this dress right here is from my continent, y'all. Booyah". I know that's a little extreme but can you imagine going into a shop like Charming Charlie and finding a dress made in Kenya? It just made my entire day! I'll be sure to put a photo up when I wear! Looking forward to the day when I find made in Ghana stuff being sold commercially in American shops. Now that will be epic!

What is the ratio?

Today as I waited to give report before leaving work, a certain someone showed up lamenting about budget cuts and how Teachers are losing their jobs. I was very sad and a little amused at the same time. I think Teachers deserve better and should not have to lose their jobs in order for someone's budget quota to be met but the thing is, a lot of people suffer this kind of injustice in their owrk place day in and day out.

The said person kept going on and on about how they want teachers to teach a class of 60 kids! Now I had to pause and munch on this for a minute because growing up, some of my classes were bigger than 60 and some of theses folks from these classess of 60 are some of the most brilliant people I have ever met. She went on to talk about how the level of education will drop etc. Maybe the so called developed countries can learn a thing or two from the "developing" countries when it comes to what makes these huge classes work. Perhaps because of the large sizes, no one has the time to lable us as bipolar, ADD, ADHD and whatever alphabets there are and so we are saved from the stigma at such an early age.

I have not conducted any research into how the student teacher ratio affects the learning habits or the intellect of young minds yet but if all humans are considered "almost" equal, then dear readers, as a person from the so called "developing" country, I have been done a great disservice and my education has surely been in vain. Maybe it did teach me to pay better attention in class so that I would not be lost in the crowd. Perhaps it did teach me a thing or two about disciplining myself and holding myself to a certain standard so that I do not fall into the bottom third or two thirds of the class.

I am not saying that the workload is easy or that it is justifiable to put these teachers in these situations. I am just peeved that anyone can suggest that a teachers ability to motivate or encourage students to learn will diminish depending on the class size. Oh well, once again, my opinion ;p

So I suppose I'm not the only one that snoozed through the Oscars this year. I must say I was very excited and looking forward to it especially after seeing Hugh Jackman's presentation two years before and even though I didn't care much about the Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin combo, I hoped this year will be much more exciting. I was even more excited after seeing the opening video and Anne Hathaway was awesome but what happened to James Franco?

It was as if someone hit the snooze button on him. He just seemed a little out of it if you ask me. Maybe the tension of being a nominee got to him and the whole pink dress thing just did not do it for me. Now I'm not saying he did not do a good job. He did somewhat of an OK job but he was a real let down and I felt bad for Anne Hathaway because it seemed like she ended up bearing the weight of hosting and making things lively all on her own. Grrr...

Anyways, why do I even care? I just know that I would be mad if someone let me down like that but then again, it's all a matter of opinion and that's my take : D... and I want Mila Kunis' dress too!

Oh before I forget, I have some exciting news for the blog soon. Might be like another month yet for the prep but look forward to it. Have a blessed week y'all!
